A bit of a Tease!

It has been a while since I last posted because I have been busy formulating new products and panicking about packaging.

Packaging is the bane of my existence. It is either completely out of my price range, or just not quite right. At least I have time next week to surf the internet to try to find what I want.

We will shortly be announcing some exciting news, at least I think it is exciting. There will be two new products hitting the website and one of them is particularly exciting for reasons you probably can't guess.

Bit of a tease aren't I, but you will just have to wait to find out what is going on.

Cocoa Butter

I decided that I would try something different, so I bought both dark and light cocoa butter to add to soap. The plan was to make two batches, one with the light cocoa and one with the dark, then have a pale layer on the darker soap and a dark layer on the pale soap.

This is not quite how I intended it to look like and the jury is still out. I fragranced it with sweet orange and patchouli, the first time I have used this combination. The soap will be available to pre-order on the website shortly.
